This is the first time I have posted a review for a hotel I have not actually slept in ! Tai O is a very special island just off the larger island of Lantau - easily accessible from downtown HK by MRT+bus, MRT+cablecar+bus or ferry+bus. Most tourists come here (as I did) as part of a day trip to Lantau... More

Amazing find if you are looking for a relax weekend getaway. This place is a well preserved, tastefully renovated, former police station turned hotel, nestled on a hill, access only by foot, bicycle or boat, in a little fishing village on the far tip of Lantau island. When you are here, you would not even know you are in Hong... More

A beautifully restored colonial building plays host to a lovely boutique hotel in one of HKs most report and interesting villages. Highly recommended as a weekend getaway or for HK visitors looking for something different. We travelled via the cable car to Ngong Ping and took a cab to Tai O which made the journey special. The hotel is a... More

It was a surprise trip for the whole family celebrating our wedding anniversary. The team at the hotel went out of their way to make us feel special. The place has been able to mix heritage and modern comfort wonderfully. The location is stunning and the walk there just refreshing from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong. I wish... More

A converted police station at the tip of Lantau. Lovely hotel with huge character and big rooms. Beautiful location. Take the local boat rather than walk from Tai O. The pier at the bottom of the hotel is great for sundowners.

My wife offered me a beautiful weekend stay at this hotel, which was originally a police station until about a decade ago. The hotel is beautiful, the rooms are excellent with great amenities, the bathrooms are clean and well arranged (I want one of those overhead showers they have, wonderful!). The view is lovely, with the sea and the mountains... More

we stayed a night at the Tai O Heritage Hotel to celebrate the birthday of my sister-in-law. Beautifully renovated hotel (a former police station), quiet location on a hill overlooking Tai O, beautiful views of the sea and Lantau. The rooms are well apportioned and comfortable. Service is attentive but not at 5 star level. The doors of rooms/suites on... More

The hotel is located in a Heritage Building, which was previously a marine police station dating back from 1902. It has been beautifully but sympathetically converted into a boutique hotel. Tai O is a an interesting village to explore and its location surrounded by a major country park offers the opportunity for great hill walks with stunning views

We have just spent a lovely 2 night break at the Tai O Heritage Hotel. We have been staying with friends in Hong Kong , and the peace and tranquility of Tai O and in particular the hotel has been a perfect antidote to the business of the city. The food is lovely we went for set dinner on first... More

This boutique hotel was amazing. Yes, it is difficult to get there since you either have to walk the 20 min from the bus/taxi station or get a jet boat (only available during daylight hours and good weather). But this hotel was so worth the trouble. Only stayed 1 night-wish we had stayed for 2 or 3. Food in town... More
